LOAD"*",8

BASIC - Part 124:  It's only because of you lot - you superbly knowledgeable bunch of computer aficionados, that I can, in all good conscience, blow a whole week's comic on loading something off a Commodore 1540 disc drive unit.  That said, MAJOR plot development this week too.

IF COMICS=DRAWN THEN NEW

BASIC - Part... oh, well, actually...  Thanks to a stupid computer problem (far too dull to go into here), the next three comics disappeared into the ether.  Thankfully, they hadn't been coloured yet so I only have to do all the linework twice - still, it did make it impossible to get a comic out this week.
Sorry!  More BASIC next week when all will return to normal.

IF GOOD=ENOUGH(SHATNER) THEN LET VIC=VIC+20

BASIC - Part 123: In this episode, we really get deep inside the Difference Engine's head.  Literally.  The technology in there is astounding!!

IF WANT$="HAT" THEN LET GET$="HEAD"

BASIC - Part 122: In which entirely the wrong tool is used for the job.

10 LET KEEPON$="TRUCKING" 20 IF KEEPON$ = NOT "TRUCKING" THEN LET KEEPON$="TRUCKING" 30 GOTO 10

BASIC - Part 121: 'I says, "Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck. We just ain't a-gonna pay no toll. So we crashed the gate doing ninety-eight I says "Let them truckers roll, 10-4." '

LET A$="ROBOT ROBOT": LET A$ (7 TO 13)="WITHIN ": PRINT A$

BASIC - Part 120: In which Miriam finds her saviour, and it's getting perilously like some giant matryoshka doll out there.

LET LOOK(DOWN)=0

BASIC - Part 119: Hang on!!!!

10 PRINT "OH NO!!!": 20 GOTO 10

BASIC - Part 118: In which we learn what ALL geeks know - going outside is dangerous!

LET PROBLEM=0: FOR X=1 TO 2: READ A$: DATA "ROAD","HILL": PRINT "RUNNING UP THAT ";A$: NEXT X

BASIC - Part 117: It's Wyndham's turn to be brave - and run away!  Still, it's all exercise, eh?

IF A$="RIGHTHERE" AND B$="LOOKINGATME" = 1 THEN PRINT "HE'S ";A$;" RAY, HE'S ";B$

BASIC - Part 116: In which we're hoping it's visual acuity is based on movement.  Tune in next week for some running away!
